Mandeville, LA – Today’s Pile of Prep: most of the stories and research used to put together the Mike Church Show on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel. 2016 is here and WELCOME to the All-New, Mike Church Show on the CRUSADE Channel, listen LIVE for Free (don’t cost nuthin’).
Sapientia et Veritas – “It is instructive to consider how the various stances of Progressives came to be occupied by conservatives and thereby how in substance contemporary conservatism now provides succor to liberal ends. Throughout the 20th century, almost every matter of public interest—economic, civic, moral—came under the purview of national authority. Some of these policies were affected through the Congress and the presidency, particularly during the New Deal in regard to economic matters. But in the realm of social policy, a watershed moment occurred in 1973 with the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, which not only identified a constitutional right to abort but invalidated a variety of state laws. The demand to fashion a national response, combined with changes in the party system that facilitated that nationalization and sharpened partisan edges, led conservatives to increasingly abandon local and regional affiliations and to regard the national stage as their natural battleground. But not until the 1960s, with the radicalization of the Democratic Party—its friendliness to socialism at home and Communism abroad—did the Republican Party embrace the label of “conservative” and begin to define this “ism” as a distilled ideology.” – Patrick J Deneen
DeceptiCONNED – Fake conservatives launch THE fake conservative campaign to prove that Donald Trump is not a “conservative” opponent of Big Government, War mongering, ethanol subsidizing, Boeing apologizing hacks that they are. Oh and please, pedestrian reader-peasant, acknowledge that WE-The Editors- ARE THE Conservatives – YOU – have been waiting for and we can prove it, just read our writings that say so… for a mere $7.99 per month! Folks, the “conservative movement”, thanks to these self-exalted cranks, is now officially dead, and this is their Requiem Mass’s program. These turkeys have enriched themselves with hundreds of billions in the subsidy they hate yet love. If the enemy had plotted a coup, it would have had little chance of execution but with the friendly’s (these cranks) prideful war and nation lust, it was made real. The Beautiful, theTrue and Good remain, surviving these conciliar partisans. Don’t take them in without a confession.
Spirits [of “conservatives] Having Flown – George Panichas reminds the Christian politico that the divorce of the soul from political life is THE fatal flaw of “conservatisms” assault on Modernity. “Such a conservatism, to be sure, has achieved institutional prominence and electoral popularity, and its glamor has even appealed to the electronics media. It is, in an organizational and popular sense, strikingly successful. But all these external trappings do not satisfy the higher spiritual demands and responsibilities that are inherent in the conservative metaphysic.”
Whoopi Goldberg Threatens To Leave ‘Muricah, Maybe She’s Onto Something? – Whenever a Hollywood celebrity threatens to leave the USA the knee-jerk reaction of “conservatives” is to shout “traitor” or some other pejorative and then raise funds for their airfare. Such will be the case with Whoopi Godlberg’s musing that “maybe its time” that she considers leaving the USA. But folks, in our zeal to SECEDE by withdrawing our consent, that is precisely what WE are advocating as well, isn’t it?
DeceptiCONNED II – Ilana Mercer wonders why the alleged über “conservative”, Glenn Beck has endorsed Theodore Rafael Cruz and slammed Donald Trump’s promise to repeal “executive orders” he thinks are “bad”. I didn’t hear what Beck said but I do know the constitutional principle that one Congress cannot bind another, save for amendments applies to Presidents as well. Good grief, where do these ridiculous ideas come from!?
Humility of Heart In Real Life – I pursue the Grace of Humility in everything I do. Note that I “pursue”, I never “attain” because as Augustine says (from Humility of Heart) ““The more man thinks he has reason to be pleased with himself, so much the more I fear his self-esteem will displease God, who resists the proud.” These words from my patron Saint echo in my mind as I read the mea culpa, mea culpa issued by our friend Joseph Pearce on the essay he wrote about David Bowie quoted today as Veritas et Sapientia. Let Pearce’s Humility be a chastising lesson to all of us in publishing and prognosticating: “Post Script: Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I confess to Almighty God that I have gravely sinned. Upon finishing this essay, I read it to my wife, expressing my discomfort at the harsh and even uncharitable tone with which it seemed to have been written. She agreed with my misgivings, especially the final part in which I purported to know the state of Bowie’s “apparently atheist” soul at the point of death. Could I be sure that he died impenitent, taking his sins with him to the grave? Did I know for certain that he hadn’t made his peace with God before dying?”
Today’s guest R.J. Snell’s book “Metaphysical Boredom in an Empire of Desire” gives us a rare, detailed look at the value of actual in an age that avoids it and the über value of “the greatness of the small”. This will be a much needed, provocative and challenging discussion! Get RJ’s book here.
Homosexual “Marriage” Is BY Definition, Pro-Choice – The sad saga of American pro-lifers distortion of the term continues when Ohio’s Right To Life committee endorses pro-homosexual “marriage”, Senatorial candidate Rob Portman. This is the end result of not opposing the unJust warfare state and embracing contraception (among other heresies). The reasons are simple and easy to understand: Sacramental marriage’s purpose is to consecrate a family-man and wife-that will then consummate the marriage and produce Life as in children. When I spoke to the MI RTL in November I brought this up and pointed out that it has been the worst of all mistakes made by Pro-Lifers in surrendering the Supernatural authority of God over the issue in favor of the natural via the political process. This endorsement is scandalous, wrong and those in opposition must stand firm.
DeceptiFAITHED – The endorsement of pro-lifers is no more a scandal and indication of the nominalism that passes for Faith than the fact that 65% of Catholics would agree with Senator Portman and the Ohio Right to Life.
Real Men Don’t Do Porn – A Wisconsin man has gotten so tired of seeing porno shop billboards on the highways near his home that he bought his own billboards saying: “Porn Destroys Love”. I love this guy…
Trumpzilla Adds Moosekiller To His Campaign Army – Just when you thought campaign 2016 couldn’t get anymore “great”, Donald Trump goes and gets the endorsement of Sara Palin and then parachutes her into Iowa for a “we’re going to make ‘Muricah all great again and stuff” rally! That Palin chose Trump over Cruz goes a long way toward verifying that there is a “I don’t like Ted Cruz, personally” caucus. Why? Because it is inarguable that Cruz will be plowing “conservative” fields long after the Trump administration has salted them.
The Modernists Have Hammered The Nail In The Coffin Holding The Virtue of Patriotism – Columnist Robert Tracinski makes a gallant attempt to analyze and then explain the “conservative” hysteria generated by the “hard working…good people need Trump” endorsement by Sara Palin of Donald Trump but he misses the mark entirely. The new patriotism is actually not patriotism but is nationalism, an base ideology whose basis is “my country right or wrong” which if followed to its logical end, culminates in trials we remember in Nuremberg. Patriotism is the devotion one gives to Christ as King and then places the country’s needs under His law, the patriot’s life is thus one that serves the first King’s public order first for the benefit of his soul and his countrymen’s. Archbishop Burke explained this beautifully in 2009: “The most treasured gift which we as citizens of the United States of America can offer to our country is a faithful Catholic life… From my earliest formation in the life of the faith, received at home from my parents and in the Catholic schools, it was clear to me that duty to one’s nation, to one’s fellow citizens, is integral to our life in Christ in the Church.”
Tune In, Turn On, Then Eat Out – The story of a semi-famous, 4 star chef who grew weary of the never-ending demands of delivering “the stars” isntead of delivering good food for good people to enjoy good times and be thankful for them all. The [r]epublicanism inspired by a growing desire for what is properly called solidarity is driving this and that’s a good thing.
Elite Europe’s Suicide Pact With Islam – The elites in Europe have had it with people asking Europeans to study the history of Europe and its struggles to survive, conquesting hordes of blood-thirsty Muslims in favor of the “colonizing” fantasy that importing refugees is moral and to not do so defies Europe’s history. Merkel: :”If Europe fails in this refugee crisis, it betrays its founding principles.” For heaven’s sake, WHAT European founding principle is she talking about and where might one find an Article I, Section I that reads: Re-import the Muslims it took you 1200 years to expel.
If You Don’t Stop It You’ll
Go Blind To Hell – It had to happen, what with hook-up culture being as important as study group culture and apps that bring promiscuous men and women together for casual sex with no contemplation; and hey, you’re stressed out and everyone knows that sex is the best relief, like, ever! so now we get this: there are now public masturbation booths on the streets of Manhattan. Yep, that just happened…
George Washington to Ted Cruz: You’re Ineligible – Here is a 2010 story that features the copy of Emmerech de Vattel’s Law of Nations that George Washington borrowed from a New York library but Washington never returned the book. Reading Vattel is a great exercise for Cruzers to perform and conform their mind to reality.
Buchanan: The Iran haters should produce some evidence for their charges of Iran conspiring to build nukes and if they can’t, act like statesman and pursue diplomacy with them. “Iran’s accusers should produce their evidence, if any, that Iran had, or still has, a nuclear bomb program. Otherwise, they should shut up with the lying and goading the U.S. into another war that will leave us with another trillion-dollar debt, ashes in our mouths, and thousands more dead and wounded warriors.”
Buchanan II: Buchanan Was Right – Back in 1996, Samuel Francis published a set of suggestions to Republican candidate Patrick J Buchanan, urging him to bail on the GOP and pursue his brand of “conservatism” outside the Republican party. MBD recounts that this advice has finally been taken by someone and used sans the ditching of the Republican Party: Trumpzilla.
The Gaystapo Strikes Back – Remember the upstate NY couple that refused to rent their reception hall to a lesbian couple who wished to “marry”? Well a judge has now ordered the couple to host any future “weddings” that homosexuals request be held in the couple’s own backyard and own living room (which doubles as the reception hall) and for good measure, the couple was ordered to pay a fine to the State of NY and pay reparations to the lesbians. So, do you still think that “this doesn’t really matter”?
DeceptiCONNED – Marco Rubio pitches a hissy fit when the United States government keeps its diplomatic word and releases Iranian assets back to their rightful owners (the Iranians). This has now become expected of “conservatives”, to hurl knee-jerk, militaristic bravado at Iran every time a the non-stop war march hits a speed bump on the way to WWIII.
Tinsel Town Has a Lesbian Addiction – Those who are howling abortion at the fact that the “Academy” has failed to nominate a black actor or actress for Best Actor or Actress for the second consecutive year must confront the obvious: the limousine liberal heretics of Hollyweird have dumped their old favorite exalted minority who was unjustly bludgeoned by white America for the new minority that fits the same bludgeoned-bill: lesbians, gays and transgenders, queer, confused, gender f***ed et al. Hans Fiene explains: “And it’s hardly the Academy’s fault blacks were too busy not being allowed to be screenwriters in 1950s Hollywood or that Latinos failed to adequately represent themselves in 1920s Scandinavian LGBTQ circles or that no one of Middle Eastern descent would have been believable as the half-German inventor of the iMac.”
There Is A Good Reason To Have An MLK Day But Not For The Reasons The Lib Media Says – Read the Reverend MLK’s “Letter from A Birmingham Jail” and you’ll see the theologic argument behind the “civil rights movement” which has been completely removed from its modern, unJust use.
The Rise of The Breitbartians – I have never pondered the proposition that the Mike Church Show may give rise to a movement of “Red Pillians” but Conor Freidersdorf of the Atlantic magazine posits the idea that Trumpzilla has given rise to “Brietbartians”, a race of former conservatives who don’t care about conservatism but instead care only about “winning”.
The Kids Are NOT All Right – A new series of undercover videos exposes what we already knew about “public education”: it’s “public” because there is a never ending supply of OPM in public affairs and the “education” delivered is better described as mental programming. This is why Common Core is the bridge too far that even publicly educated parents see as a massive transfer of wealth at the expense of the future.
While You Were Sleeping Dumbocrats Debated Spending More of Your Money – Newsflash, the Dumbocrats debated last night and according to the reviews, Slick Hilly Clinton made the choice before Soviets stranded in Americans bodies crystal clear: Sanders is the real deal but he cannot get his agenda through Congress AND it costs too much. In other words, the Dumbocrat party is now admitting that its social and moral engineering schemes actually have a price tag attached to them.
DeceptiCONNED – With Lindsay Graham’s endorsement, Jebediah Bush begins his conquest of the GOP Presidential nomination via party intrigue and subterfuge bringing my prediction of this scheme to life. If Bush can’t win the votes needed to take the nomination the old fashioned way, he and the central banking war-hawks will do it the other old-fashioned way: they’ll steal it on the RNC Convention floor.
Rubio Is A Founding Father & Eligible To Become President – Marco Rubio’s lawyers have responded to a lawsuit filed in FL against the eligibility of his candidacy and his lawyers claim that the only thing the Founders cared about was whether you were born on “American soil” or not and since Rubio was born in FL, that makes him eligible, regardless of who his parents owed their citizenship allegiance to.
The Fear To Conform Your Mind To Reality – There is an actual medical condition that causes Man to fear the Truth: Veritaphobia: 1. Displaying hesitation or refusal to admit or recognize that something is true, or to accept the concept of truth itself. Usually born out of fear of offending someone or being held accountable to something constant. 2. Dismissal of the existance of absolutes. 3. Degradation of people who profess something as true or untrue. 4. Being willfully in denial. Gives rise to constant skepticism and doubt of everything.
DeceptiCONNED II – At a Republican Party fundraiser meeting, the topic of how the party must begin to explore a plan to rid the party of Trumpzilla.
VERITAS & THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW VIA AIRFOIL – The Rogue Amoeba app company that provides Veritas with the Nicecast streaming server that relays our channel to you has released a FREE app that will transmit the Veritas Radio Network wirelessly from your desktop computer to a smartphone, take the Founders Red Pill and download AIRFOIL.
The Militia Amendment Does Not Say ANYTHING About Tedly CruzRight’s Eligibility – Breitbart News finds “scholars” that claim that the Second Amendment makes Ted Cruz a “natural born citizen” because it requires him to join the TX militia and oh, his mother was born a U.S. citizen. This further perversion of the natural born citizen clause now drags the 11 states that ratified the second amendment into their deceit. Is there a scintialla of evidence that those who ratified the 2nd Amendment attempted to define “natural born citizen”!? Where!?
Buchanan: The GOP War-Hawk Candidates Want Obama To Wage A War That Congress Has Yet To Declare – Patrick j Buchanan makes the point I have been making here, with Pat’s writing as a guide, that CONGRESS has an equal if not larger role in waging war against “enemies” like ISIS, than the President does. Yet the GOP war-hawk caucus insist that this is Obama’s baby a pirori. And these are the leaders who are going to restore federalism and revive the original Constitution!?
INTERESTING [r]epublican [r]eading: WaPo fetes Buchanan on the future of the GOP and finds it lies inside Trump Tower.
FLASHBACK: The High and Low-lights of last night’s GOP Debate, note that Tedly CruzRight is awarded for NOT answering the “birther” question and how “deftly” he explained his wife’s affiliation with the diabolical Goldmann Sachs (and the CFR!) that netted him a cool million dollar “loan”, previously undisclosed. SMH
DeceptiCONNED: The fake “conservative’s” ridiculous and bloodthirsty hissy fits over the Iran Navy’s “act of aggression”, explained in 32 words: “But then something strange happened. Wednesday morning, after only 16 hours, Iran released the sailors back to the United States, along with their boats. And we didn’t even have to bomb anybody.”
HUMILITY of Heart & Death – DavidBowie is gracefully remembered for avoiding the Judgement Pornosphere™ and dying in private and going all Brittany Maynard on the world and inviting us to share in his “death with dignity” conceit. THAT is a profound act of Humility in an age when celebrity and public disclosure of all that should be cherished and private is a requisite for “success”.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN ‘MURICAH – Minding “your own beeswax” was something the debutante ladies did when seated in a parlor too close to the fireplace. Today, we plead for ‘Murican politicians to “mind our own business” ala JQA in foreign affairs and all we hear are horror stories of what will occur on Hoth or at the Stargate if ‘Murican leadership” recedes. But as Bonnie Kristian argues, minding our own business is actually what made America “exceptional”!
LIBS ON THE RUN – Daniel McCarthy tells us that Obama inherited a nightmare, created by Bush/Clinton/Bush et al and instead of leading with a new politics of redirected “liberalism” he chose the path of technocrat dictator and expanded executive power beyond what actual kings can wield. “Obama is the unhappy technocrat who landed in the role of a world-historic figure. His defenders want to believe he really would have delivered hope and change, had he not been frustrated by an opposition party that rudely dared to oppose him.”
How Obama Taught Us To Love The Red Sox vs Yankees, And Became The Yanks Star Pitcher – From the time he began campaigning in late 2007 until this day, Dear Leader Chairman MaObama has promoted the public view that there were only two views on every issue: his view and the wrong view. How many times did we suffer through the falsity of Obama saying “all the experts agree with me” without ever identifying an “expert” or allowing that there was not a single one that didn’t sing from his hymnal. This is the essence of what I call Nominalism and the cure is not more partisanship it is better, clearer thinking through Philosophia Perennis! (hey if Obama can claim there is but ONE way, why can’t I?)
Obama Heralds ‘Murcahs Nephilim, Proclaims Divine Power of The State – Listen (if you dare) to the final 10 minutes of President Obama’s State of the Union address and you should wonder if you are listening/watching a former member of God’s Guard, now fallen, but now ascendent to claim that the United States, as a country, has cured HIV, Climate Change, Malaria, will soon stamp out Cancer, ended Hunger, poverty, failed nation states…blah blah blah. At the height of Christendom, one would struggle to find an accounting of the Ture, Triune God’s accomplishments on The Continent that could even compete with Obama. Is Obama the Anti-Christ spoken of in The Apocalypse?
Muricah, Land of The Free, Home of The Nephilim? – Listening to President Obama, Americans sounded less like children of God, mortal man and more like fallen angels with supernatural powers who must have mated with WASPS to produce this race of super-humans responsible for the ‘Murican miracles we were regaled with last night. What is a Nephilim? Read on…
Trumpzilla & Tedly CruzRight at The SOTU – Dear Leader took swipes at Tedly CruzRight: “carpet bombing” his way to mid-east stability the Trumpzilla for “insulting Muslims”.
187,000 People Watched The SOTU… Address of Senator Rand Paul in 2015 How many “Conservatives” Will Watch This year’s? – This is a stern rebuke to the War Mongering blood lusters at Fox and in the GOP Establishment for not inviting Senator Paul to tomorrow night’s GOP Debate. Paul continues to be the only GOP candidate that advocates humility in government and blasts the “over-militarized” American “foreign policy”. Watch…
DeceptiCONNED: Making Deals With Leviathan For Federal Cash Is A Deal With The Devil – Stanley Kurtz wants you to know that there is nothing but tyranny and usurpation to be gained by accepting Obama’s HUD money grants that will continue the process of destroying what little community connections that we have remaining.
